Marco Rubio Position On Gun Control Makes Him Unfit for Florida
One would think that a Senator or any other legislator representing Florida would be in favor gun control unless you are Marco Rubio. At a town hall meeting which had some students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, scene of last week’s mass shooting, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida had the gall to say that he would continue accepting campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association (NRA).
He also made clear his position against a ban on assault weapons, saying that such a ban wouldn’t help anything. Marco Rubio also had the gall to say that campaign contributions from the NRA made no difference in his opinion against gun control. Sen. Rubio also tried to sell the audience the usual position of most people against gun control, saying that such a law banning assault weapons would be meaningless because the number of weapons that fit that description would make such a ban unenforceable.
This is the usual position taken by the NRA when such a ban is proposed. Marco Rubio was just parroting the usual bullshit the NRA puts out in their efforts to confuse people, especially NRA members, into going along with whatever position they take, no matter how harmful to the public that position may be. Even though the present proposed law specifically names AR 15’s as the type of rifle that should be banned, they keep on insisting that a law would be confusing although it seems very clear to anyone who can read. It’s just like the old saying, “if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit”.
Sen. Marco Rubio has accepted nearly $3,303,355 since 2012 from the NRA. He goes to great links to explain that NRA contributions in not only his but other campaigns, don’t really make a difference in what position a legislator takes about gun control. In other words, Marco Rubio actually expects us to believe that he would take a different position on gun control if he hadn’t received over $3 million from the NRA.
Yeah right! Whoever believes this bullshit, please let’s all stand on our heads.
